Michael SeligMichael Selig

Michael Selig is a Professor of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and teaches courses in Applied Aerodynamics, Aircraft Design and Flight Mechanics. He is the leader of the UIUC Applied Aerodynamics Group and has published widely in the areas of low-speed aerodynamics, low Reynolds number aerodynamics, experimental aerodynamics, airfoil design, wind energy, wind tunnel testing and real-time flight simulation, including aircraft icing upset simulation and modeling.

His expertise has been applied to unmanned aerial vehicles/systems, kilowatt through multi-megawatt scale wind turbines, record breaking solar powered aircraft, wing-sail and appendage design for the America's Cup, front and rear wing designs for IndyCars/CART and Formula 1, and many other areas. He won the AIAA Aerodynamics Award for his research in applied aerodynamics. His codes and methods for airfoil design and wind turbine blade design are used in both the aerospace and wind turbine industries. His airfoil designs and data are available in the open/online literature and used worldwide. He has also consulted as an expert witness in aviation litigation.

Prof. Michael Selig holds a Ph.D. from Penn State (1992), M.S.E. from Princeton University (1988), and B.S. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (1984).
